    In the wake of the horrific attack on an Orlando nightclub by a man espousing allegiance to ISIS, it didn’t take long for the Big Three networks (ABC, NBC, CBS) to advance the preferred political line of the Democrats, in this election year, to push for more gun control. Beginning on the evening following the shooting, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt on June 12, sounded the clarion call for gun control: “Today’s terror attack brings national security and the debate over gun control to forefront of the presidential campaigns once again.” And for the next week, an MRC study...

    2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney will be hosting two rival Republican presidential contenders at a holiday sleepover Friday evening. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will both be staying over at Romney’s property in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, an aide to Romney confirmed. The aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of what the aide called the private nature of the event, said the former governor and his wife opened their home to the Christie and Rubio families after hearing they would be in town for the holiday weekend. Both candidates are scheduled to march...

    POLICE CHIEF ALLOWS FALLINGDOWN DRUNK TO GET IN HIS CAR AND DRIVE. STATE ATTORNEY HOPES TO SETTLE THE CASE AGAINST OMAR WITHOUT A TRIAL Several weeks ago, we reported to you that 22-year-old Omar Antonio Garcia Barrera’s planned sleep-over at Police Chief Donie Lee’s home last May 28 did not turn out as may have been planned. Although Chief Lee says that he did not serve Omar any alcohol, Omar was reportedly falling-down drunk and had become “disorderly,” Lee said. After several warnings, Chief Lee said that, about 2:30 am, he personally escorted Omar out the door and to his...

    Update: Protesters locked outJerry Cornfield Published: Thursday, April 7, 2011 Well, maybe there won't be a sleepover tonight in the state Capitol. Leaders of the Washington State Patrol and General Administration decided to lock down the building at 5 p.m. and allow only lawmakers, journalists and people with legitimate business interests to enter. It wasn't immediately clear if that meant lobbyists could not return if they left the building. What was clear is about 75 people, some with sleeping bags, were not allowed inside to watch the scheduled evening session of the Senate -- and maybe protest a little too...
  • Wisconsin GOP Will (maybe) Start (might be)Closing (some) Access to Offices at 6 p.m. Saturday

    MADISON, Wisc. -- Sen. Scott Fitzgerald, the GOP's leader in the upper house, said today that access to parts of the Capitol will be closed off to the public starting 6 p.m. A little background. The occupation of the capitol is, in some ways, a fluke. Citizens are allowed to stay overnight in the Capitol if there is a hearing going on and people are giving testimony. Democrats have had a quasi-official hearing going since the start of this impasse, which has allowed hundreds of people to sleep in the Capitol every night. But since the start of this week,...

    WASHINGTON—Of the 94 incoming members of the House of Representatives, 90% are Republicans, nearly 40% have law degrees and about 35% have never before held elective office. Oh, and at least 15% plan to bed down in their congressional offices. It's the ultimate I'm-not-a-professional-politician statement, reminiscent of the 1994 midterm elections, when a GOP House takeover led to a surge in House sleepovers. With voters again shunning Washington and fiscal excess, a number of incoming House members plan to demonstrate their scorn for both by camping out near their new desks. Many more are still undecided but may well join...

    Americans just want to have "a sleepover with people they like," said Democratic vice-presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., Sunday, accusing Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., of being "divorced" from the nation’s economic woes. "Just the other day Sen. McCain confessed and I quote, 'It's easy for me to go to Washington and frankly be divorced from the day-to-day challenges of the American people,'" Biden said.

    A sleepover at a Bucks County home turned into a sex party between a 38-year-old woman and five boys as young as 14, Lower Makefield Township police said. Police Chief Ken Coluzzi said that the woman, identified as Angela Honeycutt, had sex with a 15-year-old boy in a bathroom. Afterward, she took a 14-year-old boy into the shower where she masturbated him and allowed him to penetrate her with his finger. Coluzzi said that the "sleepover" took place April 14 at the home of Lynne Long, 45, whose son invited the five other boys but was not present when the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate readied cots and coffee for a talkathon set to last all Wednesday night on who's to blame for some of President Bush's nominees not making it to the federal appeals bench. For 30 straight hours - from Wednesday evening through midnight Thursday - Republicans and Democrats will condemn each other in 30-minutes face-offs over four filibustered U.S. Appeals Court nominees: Alabama Attorney General William Pryor, Texas judge Priscilla Owen, Mississippi judge Charles Pickering and Hispanic lawyer Miguel Estrada. Democrats have refused to allow confirmation votes, and Republicans have not been able to get the 60...
